Are You a Candidate for Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
When the signs of aging become obvious, many people assume that they may be headed for a surgical facelift. A large percentage of plastic surgeons find this idea to be false, and facelifts are their bread-and-butter, so to speak. We have moved well beyond the days of extreme facial rejuvenation. Today, most people are interested in how proven nonsurgical modalities like lasers and radio frequency can naturally slow down the aging process. Here, we discuss the value of skin revitalization using the PicoSure laser platform.
What is PicoSure Focus Lens Array Treatment?
The PicoSure laser platform is used in numerous areas of aesthetic medicine, from tattoo removal to wrinkle reduction to complete facial rejuvenation. The Focus Lens Array treatment offers a quick and gentle method of revitalizing the skin’s ability to age more gracefully. It does so by emitting high- and low-energy pulses to varying aspects of the dermis. The skin’s deeper layers receive stimulation from high-energy laser light, while more superficial layers absorb low-level energy. This variation is what achieves such outstanding results in overall skin tone, texture, firmness, and elasticity.
After just one skin revitalizing treatment, many patients begin to see:
- Healthier looking skin
- Increased radiance
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- A reduction in sun spots, scars, or stretch marks
- Softer, firmer skin
- Improved volume and plumpness
While improvement occurs immediately, patients can expect their skin to look better over time. Typically, a series of 3 to 5 treatment sessions are recommended. Each treatment reaches into the dermis to address concerns that have yet to emerge in a visible way. The completion of a recommended number of treatments promotes long-lasting results.
Many people expect laser treatment to hurt. This idea leads many potential patients to procrastinate in even consulting with a board-certified physician regarding cosmetic treatment. The combination of high- and low-level energy makes Focus Lens Array treatment more comfortable than the average laser treatment. After each session, patients may encounter mild redness that diminishes within 1 to 2 hours. Slight swelling may also occur. This is good; it tells us that the body has engaged in a healing response that will send healthy new collagen to the treated tissue.
